Tareas de la rehabilitación física.
Rehabilitation after hip replacement surgery is aimed at restoring support, motor and shock-absorbing functions. In contrast to the early rehabilitation course, designed to stabilize the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, it is aimed at improving long-term results.
The objectives of late recovery period:
- Gradual development of a motion algorithm;
- Elimination of pain;
- Restoration and stabilization of muscle strength (general and local);
- The formation of functional connections between muscles, ligaments and the nervous system;
- Increased prosthesis service life;
- Development of endurance and confidence during descent, ascent and walking on a horizontal surface;
- Improving physical, mental and social health;
- Expansion of the motor repertoire and a return to the usual way of life.
Only after the final stage of treatment (rehabilitation), surgery on the hip joint can achieve the goal and maintain the achieved result.
Proper movement is a guarantee of recovery
Recovery after volumetric surgical interventions is not only a long, but also a responsible process. To make it properly full of value, the help of professionals is required. One of the work priorities at the Dr. Blum’s Physiotherapy and Biomechanics Center is rehabilitation after a hip joint endoprosthetics. Restorative correction is carried out according to the patented methodology of its founder, Honored Inventor of Russia, Professor, MD, E. E. Blum. Built on a deep knowledge of the biomechanics of the human body functional movements, the method is focused on improving the body at all levels. For more than 30 years, the scientific “recipe” in practice has successfully proved its expediency and effectiveness.
A personalized program is compiled for each client. It takes into account age, general health, physical level, the endoprosthesis model. The developed algorithm provides for cyclicality, systematicity, sequence of exposure and adequacy of loads.
To build an individual complex of recovery measures, biomechanical diagnostics is carried out. The study allows you to identify "weak links", to formulate tasks for alternate solutions and to predict long-term correction results.
To solve rehabilitation problems of varying complexity, 800 training devices are used to set the exact dosed load on the target segments of the musculoskeletal system.
Dr. Blum’s method features
One of the principles of rehabilitation measures at the Dr. Blum Center – engage the work of the deep muscle layers. Unlike superficial, which are controlled at a conscious level, the deep muscles that are responsible for stability can only be turned on in the eccentric mode of working with the trainer, using special designs and exercises. As a result, the strength and endurance of the muscles stabilizing the joint increases, movement control improves, impaired muscle tone, muscular-articular balance are restored, distortions and pathological motor stereotypes are eliminated, and body symmetry is restored.
Rehabilitation after hip replacement surgery is a multi-stage process with the continuity of recovery measures, to the full normalization of the main limb functions. Dr. Blum’s original technique is applicable not only for postoperative patients, but also for patients with osteoarthrosis of the I and II degree, in many cases, it allows to restore the joint and to avoid endoprosthetics in the future.
The key to successful recovery is the early start of physical rehabilitation, its continuity, consistency and personalized approach. The set of optimal measures includes corrective techniques. They are aimed at accelerating the integration of the endoprosthesis into bone tissue, improving the functional state of muscles and soft periarticular tissues.
An important point. Active physical rehabilitation after replacing the hip joint prevents the development of clinical symptoms, leading to thoughts of an unsuccessful operation. In order not to lose the already achieved, it is necessary to strengthen constantly the muscles of the pelvic girdle and lower extremities, to train local and regional endurance.
Dr. Blum's method benefits
Recovery after the endoprosthetics surgery according to the Dr. Blum's method has a number of tangible advantages:
- An individual integrated approach;
- Phased recovery plan;
- Expansion of rehabilitation potential;
- Inferior (eccentric) training mode;
- A clear clinical effect with minimal energy costs;
- Lack of medicine load and invasive procedures.
Due to the addressed effect on target muscle groups, the weak links of the biomechanical chain are strengthened, on which the functional activity of the damaged segment depends. An integrated multidisciplinary approach to tasks affecting several areas of medicine significantly reduces recovery time and brings significant results.
If you still have questions or doubts, sign up for a consultation at the Dr. Blum Physiotherapy and Biomechanics Center. Rehabilitation after hip replacement is a real chance to feel confident on your feet, without walkers and additional supports.
